Q&A: The Librarian Way - Setting Goals

Every new year comes with expectations, and setting goals keeps us accountable for upholding our library's mission and assuring that our community's needs are met.  This week, Julia and I are discussing personal and professional goal setting in public and school libraries.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I am absolutely terrible at setting goals.  I'm often the last to submit them during evaluation season, and they are more often than not, extremely vague and rather ridiculous.  It's hard to define what I do and to put an expectation on it is very difficult.  That being said, I totally understand the merits of taking the time to set a focus.  So when I'm stuck, I call in my lifelines and use the awesome people I work with (and for) both in-house and throughout the intrawebs to inspire me as I approach a new year.

So what do you take into consideration when setting goals for your teen area?  Do you get your teens involved?  Don't forget to stop by this week as we keep the conversation going!
